The company plans to build a stage for dreamers to pursue their dreams, for people to make friends at home and abroad; to build a platform where hobbies are aligned with careers, to record and share interesting moments with friends.

 

"We aim to build a BIGO community in the world by providing a platform for the young & fashion conscious to come together and share their interests. BIGO LIVE has attracted millions of social media-savvy millennials across the globe since its launch in March 2016. We already have a strong presence in countries like Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, Russia, Middle East, Malaysia, America and we aspire to reach out to more countries in future. We are confident that our app will be able to capture the imagination of the young and trendy in India as well," said Eric Liu, Senior Director, BIGO Technology Pte Ltd.

India's Famous and most awarded Radio Jockey Khurafati Nitin was also present at the event as the Guest of Honor for the evening. In his speech, Khurafati Nitin said, "There is a lot of potential in the Bigo Live app and I foresee it to be one of the prominent emerging social networking and internet platforms in the future." "BIGO Live is fun, entertaining and keeps me hooked. I already have few favorites on the app and am myself planning to start going live soon on BIGO Live," he added.

The very first meetup of BIGO LIVE got 100+ Broadcasters, Internet sensation and new age media's presence at the venue. Some BIGO broadcasters traveled ten hours to participate in the very first BIGOLLYWOOD NIGHT.

Opening his heart out one of the broadcasters Mr. Vibhu, a lawyer by profession stated: "Bigo Live has provided me with a platform to showcase my talent to the world and I enjoy broadcasting for more than three hours every day on Bigo Live."
